NEW YORK CITY, March 5th 2019 – Ruari O’Sullivan’s OVERWHELM, the suffocating action platformer where enemies get power ups and you don’t, is coming to Nintendo Switch on April 4th featuring an exclusive co-op mode.

- Bosses Give Enemies Power-Ups: As you defeat each of the five unique bosses, their abilities get distributed to the enemies of the world with escalating difficulty.
- Tactile, Tense Combat: Combat is crunchy and fast. One hit and you die. Three deaths and the run is over. Defeat bosses in different orders to optimize your playthrough.
- Intense Soundtrack & Soundscape: The sparse but powerful soundscape keeps you focused and scared. The soundtrack provides occasional ominous synths to compliment intense boss fights and big moments.
